Hi,

I try again: Did anyone own The Cyclist (M. Makhmalbaf) or can tell where I can find a review?

Thanks,

Dennis :)

Is the first "Treasures of the American Film Archives" set OOP? It's no longer listed on Image's site and I'm having trouble finding it. I'm planning on picking up "More Treasures...," but the completist in me wants 'em both.

More Treasures from American Film Archives 1894-1931

Help!
Has anyone bought this in the UK. I want to order it but wish to avoid custom charges if possible. I'm wondering whether I can get away with it by ordering through Amazon.Com!

Any suggestions?

Cheers

It's almost impossible to avoid customs charges on something this heavy from amazon.com.

I bought it from deepdiscountdvd.com and was charged about 9 or 10 quid import duty and it still worked out cheaper than amazon.com's price.

Places like movietyme.com and cd-wow.com are best for avoiding customs charges in the UK (I think they even guarantee it) - but neither has the MORE TREASURES set. You could ask Movietyme to get it in for you I suppose, they're very good like that.

I didn't have to pay customs charges when I imported my copy through EnterprisesDVD, there was no extra customs or postage payable, although I'm not sure whether £49.99 was expensive for the set.

Not this time. I saw part of it on TCM and can't remember who did the score for it.

Is Teshigahara's Woman in the Dunes out of print? Any info on whether any other company might re-release it in R1? And, assuming the above answers are yes and no respectively, is this Image version so dark (as reported at DVDBeaver) that it's hardly worth purchasing on eBay?

WOMAN IN THE DUNES (1964, Teshigahara) Milestone are saying that Criterion will release it in the next year (Dec 2003)

The Image release was indeed very dark. I sold my copy a couple of years ago, hoping for a Criterion release. If that doesn't happen after awhile longer I've been planning to order the Japanese Asmik release, but that link above is not very enticing: $46 and 3-4 weeks?

Agreed, but I must say that the film and the quality of the transfer (I believe there are screenshots at dvdbeaver) has convinced me that my money was well spent. And Amazon.co.jp ships in 4 days:

Image apparently will be releasing a 1921 Dreyer film called Leaves From Satan's Book in April of this year. Never heard of this one...anyone familiar with it?

Sure I could look it up, but I'm always interested in what the posters here think about different movies.

I've viewed, briefly, screeners from Nordisk and Image - both different transfers, of different prints - and the Nordisk was about 30 minutes longer. I have a feeling that they were running at different speeds but I need to sit down and do a dual-screen comparison and see what's going on with them.

Nordisk are the original production company of the film and they are the owners of the original materials. Their screener was extremely good quality.

Thanks for this Peerpee, I wasn't aware that Nordisk released a DVD version of this. Where can I find out more about this?

I don't think Nordisk have released or even announced their disc yet... Please tell us more, Nick!

Anyone familiar with Mad Love: The Films of Evgeni Bauer? Any comments about the films themselves as well as the transfers?

I probably would have agreed with Matt until I happened across an unusual CD-ROM entitled Immaterial Bodies: A Cultural Analysis of Early Russian Films. It's a bilingual (Russian/English) CD-ROM covering in depth about 100 early films including Bauer's films. Film scholar Yuri Tsivian (who is a commentator on the R2 DVD) breaks the films down (using clips as visual footnotes) in great detail explaining why the use of lighting and editing, for example, were so groundbreaking at the time. It really changed how I viewed the films.

I haven't seen the R1 DVD but have heard that there is "ghosting" on it as a result of an improper PAL-NTSC conversion. While this seems to be a chronic problem for most Milestone and Kino releases mastered from PAL, it isn't such a problem here (as opposed to The Phantom of the Opera or The Iron Mask) as there isn't as much movement.
